About Raphael

I love learning - and firmly believe that while few things are more frustrating than failing to "get it", the fastest way to gain knowledge and understanding of a concept is to talk to a person who knows what you want to know and understands what you want to understand - and then apply that knowledge and understanding by doing something with it. I love helping people "get it"! I have tutored students from many grade levels - from grade school students with basic math to college students with chemistry and calculus.

I only teach what I do or have done professionally - with a few exceptions for subjects I scored very well in at the high school or college level. I have all of my engineering books from college - they are a prominent portion of my personal library. I have read or listened to over 100 books since graduating college - the average American college graduate reads less than one book all the way through after finishing their formal education!

If you are a "visual" or "hands on" learner who learns by seeing and/or doing, then our learning styles will match up perfectly. I currently work as a mechanical engineer, with a specialty of 3D CAD modeling/design/analysis in Solidworks. I have enough experience with Pro-E, AutoCAD, etc. to be an effective tutor for virtually any CAD program - I keep an up-to-date resume with references and all my relevant projects and it is available upon request.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

AutoCAD

I have worked with AutoCAD extensively as an engineer. My first exposure to AutoCAD was in 2001, and professionally, I work with CAD programs every day. I can teach modeling, making drawings, etc.

Mechanical Engineering

I hold a BSME from Santa Clara University and currently work as a mechanical engineer.

Very capable tutor.

Raphael was able to help me find a working solution for an AutoCad challenge, even though my software was not working properly. He is very patient and knowledgeable.
